In our work with Roman and Williams, the interior design and architecture firm, we set out to create a digital home worthy of the spaces they’ve conjured up for The Ace Hotel, The Standard Hotel, The Boom Boom Room and The Breslin, among many others. The new RomanAndWilliams.com is just that kind of showcase — we kept the design to a minimum and the imagery to a maximum, allowing their work to shine above all else. Start exploring here.

Pomegranate had a unique challenge for us. How do you successfully pivot from a beloved Kosher supermarket to a brand with cross-cultural appeal? Our answer: play to your strengths and own your reputation. We worked together to give Pomegranate a wall-to-wall refresh, creating an identity around their respect for time-honored traditions, honest ingredients, and most of all their delicious foods.
